About the Authors
  • This third edition of the principal text on the finite element method for electrical engineers and electronics specialists presents the method in a mathematically undemanding style, accessible to undergraduates who may be encountering it for the first time. Like the earlier editions, it begins by deriving finite elements for the simplest familiar potential fields, then advances to formulate finite elements for a wide range of applied electromagnetics problems. These include wave propagation, diffusion, and static fields; open-boundary problems and nonlinear materials; axisymmetric, planar and fully three-dimensional geometries; scalar and vector fields. This new edition is more than half as long again as its predecessor, with original material extensively revised and much new material added. As well as providing all that is needed for the beginning undergraduate student, this textbook is also a valuable reference text for professional engineers and research students. A wide selection of demonstration programs allows the reader to follow the practical use of the methods.

    • Covers a wide range of application areas throughout electrical engineering, much wider than any other currently available book.
    • Specifically for electromagnetics engineers; no attempt to cover wider disciplines (a failing of other, more universal finite element books)
    • Well supported by numerous computer programs
